~Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
Does today’s Bible verse surprise you, teen girl? If you are truly born-again, you are a child of God and He thinks about you. He has plans for you, just as any parent has plans for their child. I’m sure your parents want the best things in life for you. They probably would love to see you go to college, find a wonderful saved man, get married and have children 🙂 Those are all nice things. But today’s Bible verse tells me that God thinks about you as well. He may not be thinking the same thing as your parents but He IS thinking about you 🙂
So what kinds of things does God think about you? God thinks of peace for your life. What does that mean? God doesn’t want you to have drama in your life. So do you have drama in your life? God didn’t put it there because those are not His intentions for you. The drama you have in your life is probably due to some poor choices you made. Is a “friend” talking trash about you? You chose that girl to be your friend. Is a teacher riding you because you showed up late for class? Did your parents ground you because you stayed out later than your curfew? These things are the result of poor choices, right?
If you want to grow in your Christian life, teen girl, you have to be honest with yourself. You have to be honest with God. God wants good things for you. He does not want evil things for you, teen girl. He has plans for you and if you listen to Him, He will guide you.
Psalm 119:105 says, “Thy word [is] a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” If you want to know what God’s plans are for you, seek Him through reading your Bible and being obedient to it. Obey your parents and seek their counsel. Take God’s Word seriously in your life and you will receive rewards from Him. Remember, God wants peace for you!
